We all know what active candidates are, they have their resume prepared, they are on the major job boards and they are actively applying to jobs. What is a passive candidate? The common definition is that passive candidates are not actively looking and they have to be pursued.

There are so many options available to job seekers when the job hunt begins that it can be pretty scary to anyone just getting back into the swing of things - and hoping to not swing for too long. Is it okay to just post a resume on this board or should I use that board? Should I try and find the hiring person and flood them with calls or trust that the resume screener will relay the message to the hiring manager of just how awesome I am? Do I take a headhunter seriously or take… Continue

Here I am in sweltering Phoenix, AZ, waiting impatiently for a certain new arrival to make an entrance. I am the designated Birth Coach for my sister who is having her second child, and this little boy (Joel) is taking his sweet time in exiting the womb! My view of this process from the Birth Coach side has really changed the way I have traditionally understood this role.
When you have your own kids, and you're the female, you just expect the father to Man Up - be there for you,… Continue

The more I think about this the more it makes sense to me. Everything you need to know about sourcing you can learn by attending a garage sale!! Call it what you will; maybe it is the thrill of the hunt, the thrill of finding hidden treasure, or maybe even the thrill of beating the system. (You know, getting good stuff for a fraction of its value!) If you ever attended one you’ll… Continue

There are so many of us out there looking to recruit the same candidates, and we all have our pitch about why our opportunity is better, but what is going to stand out in the mind of the candidates? The personal time we take to get to know them and understand what they are really looking for. I would love to pose the question, how many of us really take the time to get to know our candidates and make sure we are being their consultant and not just pushing them through the process to make a… Continue

Parents pushing team sports on their kids may seem like a crafty way to just get them active and out of the house, but most know that the skills of teamwork learned as a youth never go out of style.Company executives also know that the benefits of team-building can pay off big when it comes to the bottom line. Employees working together for one common goal have always worked better than encouraging the individual stars to carry the load — and now, executives have some high-end research to back… Continue

When you ask a group of recruiters about which search engine they prefer you are likely to get many and diverse response starting from AltaVista, Google, Yahoo, live, etc… You also might hear people say "I used to prefer (fill in the name,)" but changed to yahoo or Google or live because it was better. And the one thing that you will soon realize is that everyone’s definition of better varies as well. Since search engines are free and user can go from one search engine to another search engines… Continue

When we live from high to high we lose sight of what it took to get there. We become addicted to the high and are down when we don’t have constant success. The success is built and thrives in the daily, seemingly mundane, work we do. The point: relax, focus on the small steps, the individual conversations, and don’t let the success go to your head. Enjoy your day because today you have the opportunity to touch many people’s lives with your words and work.

A few weeks ago I was excited to share a video that I was proud to be part of. It did (and continues to do) a great job at explaining to potential job seekers what occurs in the 'day in the life of' a Premises Technician. Of noted debate from time to time is just how technical this particular brand of technician is required to be.… Continue

Searches don’t happen real-time, they take place in databases, within search engines and under a host of algorithms. Some search engines are free of human intervention while others are a selection of hand picked links. Within search engines, some searches are guided by keywords, some are natural language driven, and yet others are advance intelligence systems.
Search engines, directories, and other search… Continue

There’s an old organizational formula that firms seem to have forgotten. It goes like this:
Performance = Ability * Motivation
The formula is simple. And it works.
The Piece We’ve Forgotten
